My Thoughts on The Only Safe Place Left is the Dark by Warren Wagner –
During a zombie apocalypse, one man has been isolated in his cabin the whole time while another has been on the run.
After bumping into each other one day while on a supply run, they realize that they’re looking for the same medicine as they share a diagnosis. Next, they’re forced to partner up and make a journey to a pharmacy warehouse for medicine.
But will they make the trip safely in the first place? And if they do, is what they’re hoping to find even still there?
While many elements here were heartbreaking and absolutely gut-wrenching at times, there was also so much hope as well! But of course, that’s not all. As this was indeed a zombie tale, there was also a ton of action and bloodshed!
This tale drew me in immediately. I already love zombie tales, but how unique this one was had me so interested to see what was going to happen next!
My Favorite Passages from The Only Safe Place Left is the Dark –
Today’s book that he’s reading is entitled Edible Flora and You and as he turns a page, he hears a scream in the distance. A bloodcurdling scream. The kind of scream that keeps you up at night. That kind that tells you something dreadful is out there and you had better be prepared.
Highway 28 no longer belongs to civilization. The road is covered in high grass and plants that have overtaken many of the vehicles that were, at some point, abandoned. Some vehicles are empty, while others have skeletons in them. Some have families of skeletons.
Postcards from the past, leaving a haunting reminder of what was lost.
My Final Thoughts on The Only Safe Place Left is the Dark –
What a fresh take on the zombie trope! These zombies are the most unsettling I’ve ever come across!
Pick this one up when you can read straight through! You won’t be able to put it down!
